Welcome to My World....So Far

NJ Tech Teacher shared a site that lets you map your travels.

For a visual learner like me, this graphic serves as an easily scanned reminder of the deficiencies in my world travels. Although I've expanded my virtual horizons considerably, I still fancy exploring in real time some of those cities, countries, and continents upon which I have yet to set foot. I have seen "...the glory that was Greece, And the grandeur that was Rome." (Edgar Allan Poe, To Helen); I want to see more.

I've done a bit better when it comes to U.S. travel, but there are still quite a few states I haven't visited yet.

You should definitely go to Australia, it's absolutely amazing. I've only been to Sydney and Hobart but they were both spectacular. Well worth the amazingly long flight.

It looks like we both need to travel more! I was going to tag you with the meme in your previous post. Someone beat me to it!

Nick,

Thanks for the advice. I'd love to go to Australia some day.

Ann,

Ready for a field trip?
